i have installed Debian 3.1 Stable using VMWare Workstation 5.5
i run ipconfig ( from windows, on linux it says when i type this command: "-bash: ipconfig: command not found" ). everything looks just fine when i receive results from ipconfig.
if you can tell me which command i should use on linux to see my network statistics.
